|One of life’s bonuses is to receive photos of something you really want.
Such was the case this morning when a friend of mine who I met as agent for MSC at Bluff, he is a Chief Officer sent through some recent shots of the ex Saxon Star, to my knowledge the last remnant of Blue Star Line still aground in Romania, now a popular tourist attraction with local tour boats, there is no intention to break her up.
Hope you enjoy them
On the stbd side of the wreck there is a huge hole. It seems that when the revolution took place in '89, they "thought" that some terrorists are hiding inside and sent some torpedoes. The deck collapsed as well...
